Default Bad Luck with Airtronics Servo

Ok so iam new to the buggy racing, I was put in the B main today I was running very good, up by 2 laps and my steering servo quit with 4 min. left DNF, I was very mad to say the least, I just put a new JR Z9000S in this morning for the T/B duties. My steering was a Airtronics 94359, what should I consider getting for a new one. I like JR warranty and service, I drive a Mugen 1/8 buggy and donít run lipos yet because I donít know what to get and iam kind of on a budget.

If you like it, get the JR. I would get the Airtronics fixed. You will need to have a backup. Airtronics will call you with the repair price before they do anything, so it is safe to send it in. I have not had one yet that wasn't worth the price of repair. They are very reasonable with repair prices

Anything over 150 should be OK for buggy.

i've run the 94359z for steering in all of my vehicles and never had a problem. they are starting to become harder to find so i've been switching to the 94773m servos.

I had a 94358 catch fire. It was shooting a flame out the side of the case. I don't think I'll be buying Airtronics again.
